Life is a journey, and many times that journey involves pit-stops, rough terrain, and even a few U-turns. That’s what makes life exciting! Right? The truth is that there are many opportunities in life to feel like we’ve strayed from our path. At times, getting back on that path can be intimidating or simply seem like it’s out of reach.  

Summertime is an excellent time to get back on track to living the life that you imagined for yourself. If you’re feeling like your health or fitness could use a bit of a kickstart, why not consider joining others who feel the same?  

We’re talking about a fitness challenge! Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey, getting back on track, or are well on your way but just want a bit of support and guidance, a group fitness challenge can help you get to where you want to be. We’ve listed out just a few reasons why you should join a fitness challenge this summer. 

Jumpstart Your Goals 

Nothing feels better than hitting those goals you’ve set for yourself. There is a reason you’ve determined those goals and while the process of getting there alone can feel particularly difficult, joining a fitness challenge gives you an extra motivation boost. This is because you’re surrounded by others who are trying to reach their own health and fitness goals. Even if you feel like a fitness challenge won’t get you to your final destination, it can be a great jumping off point. Being a part of a challenge that gives you step-by-step guidance and instruction from professionals can make or break your experience.  

Gain a Sense of Community 

This is perhaps one of the most beneficial aspects of joining a challenge. As humans we thrive when we feel that we are connected to others or that we’re part of a community. It’s a basic instinct for us to surround ourselves with others who share our values. A challenge builds that community for you and gives you the opportunity to learn from those around you.  It’s no secret that the journey to a healthier lifestyle can be difficult, but it’s especially difficult when you’re going at it alone. This sense of community will motivate you, inspire you, and potentially get you to those goals faster. 

Take Control of Your Health 

Through all of these wonderful benefits, the most important part of joining a challenge is to benefit your overall health.  It is completely understandable to feel that your health is not at a level that you’d like it to be, and it’s also understandable to be confused about how to change that.  Health and fitness challenges come equipped with an assessment to gauge your overall physical health. This allows you to better understand your starting point. The challenge will also give you access to nutritionists, and professional fitness instructors who will give you personalized attention.  While taking our health into our own hands can be daunting at first, it can be made easier through a fitness challenge.
